Default Ballistic Flying Fish==Frenzy Big Game Tackle

There were a couple of earlier posts about using flying fish lures for tuna. I have used these down here in Venice, Louisiana for the last couple of years and they are unreal. These are by far the best lure I have ever found for yellowfin and blackfin tuna==we call them tuna crack. We started out using them at night under the lights of deep water oil platforms. We use heavy spinning tackle with 65 to 80 lb. test braided line. We have caught yellowfin up to 160 lbs on this type of outfit. We tried a lure called yummie flying fish, but had trouble with the wings falling off. The rubber was also a bit soft and would tear after just a couple of fish. This was frustrating because they were not cheap. There's a new flying fish lure available now put out by Frenzy Big Game Tackle (www.frenzytackle.com). This thing is outstanding. It's a one piece lure, so you don't have problems with the wings falling off, and the rubber is so tough you can't cut it with a serrated knife. The best part is these lures only cost $12.69 fully rigged. I have one that I have caught 12 yellowfin over 100 lbs. on, and it still looks great. This past summer we started using them in our trolling spread and they work great there too. We hammered the tuna, wahoo, dolphin and marlin on these lures off of South Pass. I would be willing to bet they would work great off the east coast of Florida and up in the Carolinas. We raised several blues and a sailfish in one day on a flying fish daisy chain. Our latest success with the Ballistic Flying Fish has come at the famed midnight lump off of South West Pass, La. We have been dropping one back into our chum slick and I gotta tell you, there's nothing like watching a 190 lb. yellowfin tuna crush one of these things on the surface. And because we don't have to cast them, we are able to land fish this size using our heavier tackle. This method would probably work well while chunking tuna off of the east coast canyons. They even make them in glowing colors for night fishing.

Frenzy also makes sabiki rigs and circle hooks (in blue and red). We have been using the blue ones chunking at the lump and they seem to blend in better==this is great because the yellowfin seem to get hook and leader wary later in the season. We use the red hooks live baiting in the summer for marlin and tuna. A captain out of Venice caught a 250 Lb. blue marlin in November using one of their Angry Poppers on a spinning rod. The greatest thing is, their tackle is less expensive and in most cases better than the other tackle out there. Give em a try and I hope you do as well as we have with them.

Have read a good bit about these Ballistic Flying Fish, and your post is certainly very positive.

Just checked Frenzy's web site.* Too bad they haven't heard of eCommerce, and only list four dealers - all in La.

While this may be true it reads too much like a commercial to me.

Care to let us in on your affiliation?

This really isnt a commercial, this stuff is the ticket. I live down here in Baton Rouge, La and personally know many captains in the Venice area that all just rave about this stuff. It is reliable, and I have first hand seen it work. The sabikis are unreal. We had a day where they wouldnt touch anything else we dropped to them.

jakeo.... You may be 100% correct, however when a first time poster sounds like an infomercial on HSN, the old salts here have a one-way mind. Myself included.

New posters.... introduce yourself, type boat, where you live, how long boating, etc.. Then get into pro's and con's of different equipment. Just my .02

Hey guys,

I promise I'm not on the payroll with Frenzy Tackle. I have fished bluewater out of Venice since 1975 and have tried every method in the book==from de-boning and butterflying mullett to Kona heads to Cajun yaps to live baiting. I am not kidding here. I wish you guy's could see the fish jump on these lures. The only thing I have found to be more productive than these lures is live flying fish==and they are very hard to come by and very fragile. You don't have to believe me==ask any of the captains that run overnight tuna charters to the floating platforms in the gulf what the most productive lure is and they will tell you the same. I guess the reason my first post came off as sounding like a commercial is I've been burned by expensive lures that produce fish, but fall apart quickly. A flying fish with one wing does not catch fish. I have watched flying fish attracted to rig lights for years, and for the most part they just drift through the lights with their wings (fins) open. It's all about this silhouette to the game fish, and try as I might, the fish just would not hit a lure with one wing. The guy's that make these one piece lures fish out of Venice and that is where I met them and acquired my first few test lures. The main problem that I have had since then is not being able to get enough of them. They are finally available in the New Orleans and Venice areas and I have heard Frenzy will ship tackle to areas where they do not yet have a tackle rep. I've fished blue water from Bermuda to the Gulf to the South Pacific one thing has remained constant: the most common thing I find in the stomach of pelagic fish that I have caught is squid and flying fish. Match the hatch==if you buy one of these and your experience is anything like mine, you will be P.O.'d you did not buy more.

Rybovich

This board has few tough rules but one of them is no commercial sales unless you financially support this site.

Your first post was interpreted by some here as* an advertisement only missing the 1-800 number and as seen on TV

I found your post to be commercial, but maybe that was not your intention.

I hope you continue posting and talk about fishing and boating . . . if however you want to sell your products, contact Wiley the owner of this board and he would likely be happy to have another sponsor.

Members here are tend to be quite supportive of the board's sponsors.

I am just an old posting whore and have no affiliation with this board except that I live here

Wow,

You guy's are tough on new blood here. I use a few superlatives and post a website and all of a sudden I own the company. I discovered this website a few weeks ago and have enjoyed the the information I have gleened from it. I decided to post today for the first time after reading a post on the use of flying fish lures. Here's my info:

J. Ryan
New Orleans
B.S. Marketing LSU (this may explain the tone of my first post)
Ex: Seaplane Pilot/Fishing guide==Southern Seaplan Inc.
Current: B737 F/O Continental Airlines
Boat: 31 Bertram
Next Boat: 37 Rybovich/Merritt/Gamefisherman
Largest fish:800+ lb Blue Marlin==2000 W/Capt Alan Card on the Challenger-Bermuda (120#Wahoo the same day)
Fished Costa Rica 1997
Guam/Palau 1997-1998
Big Game Fishing Louisiana 1975 -2005

If you would like to read more about my past fishing exploits there will be an article in next Month's about the history of tuna fishing off of Louisiana.

I do not own this company or receive any money from this company==I don't know how else to say it. I AM NOT AN ADVERTISER. Just a fisherman with some good info. If you would like a full resume please e-mail me.

I have a feeling that the guy's with the accusatory tone (the ten percenter's) probably hammer all of the new posters here and the rest of the guy's(the ninety percenters) just appreciate all of the good information they can get.

Tight Lines
